Two Plumas County men escaped serious injury when the plane they were flying went down in rugged terrain early Sunday afternoon, July 27.

Quincy business owner and pilot John Fehrman said his 1946 Euro Coupe 415C, based in Quincy, didn’t respond as he applied power to climb and clear a ridge. He said he was left with no choice other than making an emergency landing in a thicket of pine trees.

Fehrman, 62, a seasoned pilot who has logged more than 7,000 hours of civilian flight time, departed the Chester airport at approximately 10:20 a.m. with passenger Isaac Preston.
